We were able to get reservations at the last minute and were very happy with the facility. The location is very convenient for access to major freeways. The parking lot has a high fence around it & a security guard that patrols all night. We could not tell why that was necessary but it made us feel that our car... More

We have stayed here before and are quite comfortable with the clean room and great location to Old Town. The staff is top notch and most enjoyable to chat with especially the bartenders--very down-to-earth--Love the breakfast vouchers and the staff in the restaurant--warm and accommodating on all counts--will definitely stay here again!

We have always stayed at this Best Western when we are either visiting Albuquerque or just driving through, and it has never disappointed. The location and price are both great, and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Also, I much prefer the voucher system for breakfast rather than the traditional continental breakfast in the hotel lobby.

This is one of the nicest Best Westerns we've stayed. We were greeted warmly at the front desk and given a giant cookie and a bottle of water for being a BW Rewards member. Very clean, quiet and well-appointed room decorated in southwest style. Hotel is located close to Old Town, about a ten minute walk. Breakfast time is 6-noon... More

This Best Western is in a great location if you are going across country. It is right next to the freeway, has a restaurant/bar in the hotel as a nice Winery/Restaurant in walking distance. There is a Starbucks and gas stations (including diesel) across the street. The staff is clean, courteous, and attentive.
